In this episode of The Success Revolution, I speak to the vivid (their own word!), hilarious, highly intelligent, perceptive, modern force that is The Midult. Set up and run by journalists Annabel Rivkin and Emilie McMeekan, The Midult is a blog, a podcast and a movement. What Annabel and Emilie believe (and shout about with plenty of humour on a daily basis) is that women in their midulthood deserve some of the spotlight. Why is it that when we reach our late 30s, the Midult think, and I wholeheartedly agree, do women become invisible? And not just invisible to society, but to ourselves too. In this podcast we explore this extinction, come up with some answers and belt out plenty of laughs and profanities in the process.
The pair write, and talk, openly about their neuroses, just as they do their grey pubes. And in doing so have, not-unwittingly, helped give a voice to women who feel crushed by constant pressure and expectation to be living their #BestLives but who deep down just don’t give a damn.
In this episode we talk about the power of female friendship, what it means to be a working woman today, how Emilie’s adoration for her husband knows no bounds, and how they manage and end up ignoring their internal negative voices.
You can find The Midult across all social media platforms @themidult and on their site themidult.com
